Bachmann Group to Sponsor Maritime UK's 'Employer of the Year' Award
The second Maritime UK Awards event is due to take place in November 2020. Bachmann Group is extremely proud to announce that we have been selected to sponsor the Employer of the Year category at the event.
Maritime UK is an umbrella body, which brings together the many industries that make up the maritime sector: these industries include shipping, ports, engineering, services and leisure. Together, maritime industries create and support well over one million jobs, adding more than £46 BILLION to the economy each year (more than rail and air combined) and facilitating a massive 95% of UK global trade. The stated purpose of Maritime UK is to 'champion and enable a thriving maritime sector'.
The location chosen for the second Maritime UK Awards event is Plymouth, for centuries a hub of marine activity. In this area, maritime contributes around £3.8bn to the UK economy, providing over 108,000 jobs. Any money generated from the awards event will be immediately reinvested into Maritime UK's several cross-sector initiatives, such as careers, trade promotion and Women in Maritime.
Commenting on the recent announcement, Bachmann Group's CEO Nick Saul said: “The maritime industry is vital for world trade. We at the Bachmann HR Group are proud to sponsor the Maritime UK Awards which recognise the importance of the UK in shipping and the many wonderful individuals and organisations that form the core of our great maritime business. The Bachmann HR Group has been managing the employment of seafarers for our clients for over 45 years. We recognise the need for excellence in managing the employment of staff and so we wish to support the best in our field.”
Ben Murray, Director at Maritime UK, said: “We are delighted to have Bachmann Group on board as a sponsor for our second Maritime UK Awards. Their specialist team has developed a high level of knowledge and expertise.”
